It’s simple – having a grain monitoring system puts money back in your pocket.
With an initial investment of only pennies per bushel, an OPI grain monitoring system provides you with the visibility and information necessary to make informed management decisions.
It’s about maximizing profits, avoiding spoilage and saving on time and energy costs.
Solutions such as the IntegrisPro system or the easy to use wireless OPI Blue system allow you to efficiently reach your desired moisture and temperature targets, put your grain in a safe storage state and avoid costly losses.
OPI Blue, for example, with sensors that measure temperature and moisture that can alter the grower when the grain is warming up and automatically activate fans to cool and dry the commodity.
The added benefit of the automated fan control system is you will see decreased utility costs through reducing energy consumption. This increased efficiency hits your bottom line by saving you money that would have otherwise been spent running your fans, at the wrong time.
If you have your grain in safe storage conditions, you can carry it longer and sell when you want to, not when you have to. There’s tremendous value in that. It gives you the flexibility to sell at a time when you can get a better price.
Unfortunately, many of today’s growers are driven to a monitoring system following a large loss. While some might tolerate small losses, it’s the larger ones, such as an entire bin, that drive home the realization that they need to be doing more to protect their investment.
The other obstacle to adopting a grain management solution is the perception they are difficult to use – this may have once been the case, but not with an OPI Blue system.
The OPI Blue system offers a sophisticated network of sensors and controls in the bin that are still easy to monitor and control. In addition to automatically turning the fans on, based on inputs specific to your grain, OPI Blue does the rest of the heavy lifting by delivering hourly grain storage information to your mobile or desktop devices.
And that means no more driving to your bins to plug in. You can access data, anytime, anywhere.
